Village to Village Foundation (V2V) established a scholarship for combat veterans serving in Iraq or Afghanistan (other combat war veterans considered) attending Butler County Community College, Butler County PA, near Ross's hometown Knox, PA.  The scholarship continues forever to pay Ross' good deed forward.  Each year, V2V and Butler County Community College awards $500 of interest earned on invested funds to veterans to help pay cost of living needs (e.g. babysitting, rent, utilities, etc.) 

We reached our goal of raising $10,000 to make the scholarship self-sustaining forever! 

Thank you to all who contributed.

Ross will not be forgotten!

On November 6th at 7 pm Chris Haines and Gettysburg High School are hosting the Legends of Adams County Charity Dual.  They are paying forward Ross' good deed and donating the proceeds to the SPC Ross A McGinnis Pay A Good Deed Forward Scholarship and Pay A Good Deed Forward Token Program.  Past Adams County wrestling champions will return to the mats and face off for this charity benefit.  We would love to see you there.

This all would not be possible if it were not for Garrett Roche and his sons Vincent and Aiden.  Together his sons found Diane's cell phone in December 2012, and Garrett tracked down Diane and returned her phone.  Diane promptly gave Garrett Ross' token and told him Ross' story.

Garrett took the token and then things started happening.  He thought about it and then requested another token through our website.  A year and a half passed.  Then in June 2014, Village to Village Foundation received an email from Garrett out of the blue, saying he knows how he would like to pay Ross' good deed forward.

Through Garrett's vision and desire to continue Ross' good deed, he asked if he could wear our logo on his training outfit; he decided to start training and competing in Mixed Marshal Arts (MMA) fighting.  He designed the logo at the top of this page to wear on his shorts and t-shirt.  ...but Garrett didn't stop there.  He then contacted Coach Haines and asked if he would choose Village to Village Foundation as the Legend's charity for their 2014 event.

A special thanks to Garrett, Vincent and Aiden for paying forward Ross' good deed.

You have to reach for the stars to get to the tops of the trees!  The view is awesome!

Hello Villagers!

In Honor Of

Spc Ross A. McGinnis

The inspiration to create Village to Village Foundation came when the news of SPC Ross A McGinnis' (United States Army) heroic act was first heard of in December 2006. He is a young soldier who gave his life by using his body to cover a grenade; thereby saving four of his friends. Ross' unselfish and heroic action inspired the creation of this non-profit organization, to carry Ross' message forward. We are all in this together!
